Re: Anchoring in lake weeds

A Danforth is probably about the worst since it has so much surface area for the weight. Beyond the anchor, a really important consideration is the technique. You want to not be moving at all so the anchor and chain can work down through the weed without picking up too much of the vegetation. If you are moving in any direction the anchor gets clogged with week before it even has a change to find the bottom.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
